Mainfield Projects works with unique collectors and brings compelling art and challenging presentations into Random. I often reach out to our friend Herb Rabbin for projects like these. We wanted to show the information/propaganda on the reverse of "The Dear Leader Smiles #1", a Jeffrey Valance piece, we also wanted the mounting to be maple to match a maple frame. We chose 3/8 inch maple plywood and enlisted Herb's help in cutting out the rear window. I used a waterbased poly topcoat on the backing and maple spacers, Maloof Oil and beeswax on the frame. Museum glass made for a seamless presentation.
